0 0

DHL Group’s language learning app, developed by the post and parcel Germany division and educational provider LinguaTV, has been awarded the national World Summit Award Germany in the Learning & Education category.

The free app is aimed at employees who want to improve their German or English skills and provides employees with the opportunity to voluntarily take a placement test, which then enables them to access customized courses that cater to their specific needs.

In addition to general German courses, the app includes vocabulary trainers and video lessons with content related to the professional environment, allowing users to learn how to handle typical situations in their professional everyday life and improve their active speaking skills.

In the post and parcel Germany division of DHL Group, a collaborative workforce of approximately 200,000 people from around 180 countries come together to operate and deliver services. DHL Group also ranks second among the top 50 performing global companies in terms of hiring refugees, with approximately 400 refugees from Ukraine employed in branches throughout Germany.

Thomas Schneider, chief human resources officer for post and parcel Germany, stated, “Language is a key factor in integration. The language learning app has proven its worth in the company over the past two years and helps to better integrate foreign colleagues. And good communication within the teams and with customers is a guarantee for high service quality.”

The further education project has already received several awards, including the International IELA Award 2023 and the German eLearning Award 2022.
